of coverage because we are still or some of us are still so devastated by it. i think overall the media is going to move on to the election. there is going to be a second day story on mayor bloomberg's decision not to cancel the marathon. it's a big debate this weekend. >> i just have to give a shout out our fox forecasters who on thursday before the storm was going to hit how bad it could be. eric whimple apparently slammed her and said, given what we know about the storm, as it makes its way to land fall is it too vindicate dean and her employer. no way. more whimple you are not a meteorologist and janice did a great job. >> next on news watch, hurricane sandy spins over the east coast and the media spin and the coverage. >> hurricane sandy pounds the east coast. did the wall to wall coverage of the devastation drown out coverage of the campaign? and the media turned a spotlight on obama post storm efforts but what did the media give governor romney. answers next on news watch.

[laughter] i love those gals on "the view," and i wanted to kiss them all before i left. [laughter] you know, i realize that people who are familiar with the actual history of civil rights in america or who have read my books notice that they had not read the books, but that was great because they believe everything the "new york times" believes, but the new york times won't argue with me. at least the gals on "the view" will argue with me. the summary of the book is white guilt never produced anything good, and don't make t
